Do you think the pipe is strong enough to lean a ladder and man against 15' in the air? That would probably be schedule 40, right?

I guess you could use U-bolts with a piece of wood or metal on the chimney side to attach the bands to, and maybe a metal plate or something with u-bolts for the bottom box support. This may be a better option than trying to muscle 200 lbs of lumber around. Cheaper for too, plus it won't rot. I would be interested in seeing pics of the hardware for your setup.

Default Stove and Chimney support

Hey Jafo,

I've got some free time since I quit my job today. It ended in a interview with HR that may get me another job. The world works in mysterious ways.

The stove is working well! We hardly get any smoke in the yurt, so the draw is very good. So good in fact, I will install an extra damper, the stove has built in one for cooking, but I want one on the outlet to adjust the burn rate better.

Chimney support is holding up rock solid. It didn't move at all last night in the 50 mile gusts we got. This was cemented in 4x4's, 29inches deep with six bags of Quikrete. I am keeping the extra chimney pipe and still deciding on whether to add it in or not. Overall things are going well and now I have time to finish some projects, and hopefully find a job with hours that don't consume our lives, and is somewhat enjoyable.

Ahh so you are only using two of the 3 foot sections for the chimney?

Yes, we used two for 6 feet of chimney above the clean out tee. We may or may not add the third for 9 feet.

Yes, we mixed all the cement by hand, two bags at a time, 1,200 lbs. Notice how we put up cardboard against the yurt. Since we were mixing cement right there by hand, we wanted to make sure we didn't splash any on the side cover:

Here is the the cement over the second layer of rebar and some block we threw in there because we thought we might run short of cement:

This is that unistrut we are going to use to strap the chimney to. We will cut it into sections:
